    I am getting a few chicks in a few days but i am wondering what do i do with them when they are too big to have inside but still too small to have with the big chickens.
    The coup isn't really designes to have a spot sectioned off....any ideas?

    Get creative with hardware cloth! I had to make a partition in my dog crate once to cordon off a pushy silkie. I was able to shove the feeder and waterer under the hardware cloth fence so they could both eat and drink from the same dishes.

    Well you could just section off a bit of the garden with chicken wire. Or if you can't get that put a large plastic pool in the garage or wherever and put them in there. just clip their wings so they can't fly over and knock everything over! Mine went outside at Week Two, but I guess we didn't have any bigger chickens at the time. [​IMG]
